Change DNS?


#1

Hi

I’ve been working developing a WP site using a dreamhoster URL (eg: mydevsite.dreamhosters.com) and I will soon need to push it live so the URL is mysite.com. Apparently I didn’t really think it through ahead of time, and thought this would be straightforward, but it seems like it’s not.

Do I have to set up the DNS and URL and then physically move the whole site, or is there a way I can just point the DNS to the current directory?

Thanks!

You don’t have to move the site. When you setup DNS, it’s the same as normal. When you add the domain to your site, make sure the web directory points to where you installed it :slight_smile:

Awesome, thanks!

That’s what I was thinking, but then I went to look into specifics and it seemed like not.
